Abstract

Today in Tanzania, there is a bill of rights which provides for several rights. This is found under the constitution of the United Republic of Tanzania and this bill of rights was incorporated in 1984 following Tanzania’s fifth constitutional amendment.[i]

However, there has been concern and criticism of Tanzania’s Human Rights record in recent years. Some sources have further suggested that Tanzania’s Human Rights record deteriorated significantly under President John Magufuli’s reign.[ii]
